In reviewing 2015, the Shasta Dogs team is amazed at all the people and dogs who have joined us in active & responsible dog ownership! It's been a time of dear friendships, lots of learning, and excitement for the year to come.

We have more resources and contacts than ever for creating opportunities to train and enjoy dogs! As this year comes to a close, make a New Year resolution to get involved in your community through your beloved dog.

If you need a bit of inspiration, just look at the opportunities!

Lure coursing is a great outlet for a dog's natural hunting instincts. We will be continuing this fun, high-speed activity for fit, adult dogs.

Sheep herding clinics with Patti Wells were a blast. Herding is scheduled to resume in April, after lambing season.

Shasta Dogs is now associated with Barn Hunt Association LLC. We look forward to growing this delightful sport in Northern California

Puppy Social & Obedience Training

Among the participants of our Fall series, several have gone on to Search & Rescue, CGC certificates, and Rally!
New training clinics and classes are planned for 2016. Watch the newsletter or calendar!

The Shasta Dogs beginning agility workshop, taught by Diane Ostrem and Jennifer Phillips, was very popular! We hope to soon offer "Agility Basics" in a more permanent location.
